Anise (Illicium verum) is commonly called the Chinese Star Anise because of the seed pods shape. The plant itself is a medium-sized evergreen tree that grows in Northeast Vietnam and Southwest China. This current species has taken over production in essential oils from the original plant that was cultivated in parts of Egypt and the Middle East. The switch happened primarily due to the cost of production.

This spicy oil with a licorice-like flavor has been used in blends, mouthwashes, soaps, skin creams, and perfumes. In addition, the plan has been sought after for its medicinal properties, especially to fight the flu.
